The very best S/PDIF output is from a Lynx AES16 card, but they are over $600. For nearer $100 which card has the best S/PDIF out. Transformer isolated outputs and a good clock are features that seem to me to be good indicators, but what you you think.
The S/PDIF from my motherboard is bound to be less than perfect, but what sensibly priced card is worth a try. I know the Sabre DAC in the NFB-11 should reduce the issues, but wanted to at least look at options.
